Samsung Galaxy s7
The release of the Samsung Galaxy S7 is a very important event in the world of smart phones. Last year marked the first time that Samsung released a smart phone that ended up beating what Apple released in the same year. The Samsung Galaxy S6 beat the iPhone 6, and the S6 Edge brought an entire new dimension to the design quality of Samsung’s flagship smart phone.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 looks to cement Samsung’s newfound dominance in the world of smart phones, and since it will be going head to head with Apple’s new iPhone 6S it is important to note where the phone exceeds the performance of its rival.
One of the most potent features of the Samsung Galaxy S7 is how water resistant it is. The Samsung Galaxy S5 was highly water resistant, but its plastic design made it look and feel cheap. The S6 had a metal casing, and thus felt more like the kind of high end phone that one expects to buy in that price range. However, the metal casing made the phone less water resistant.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is highly water resistant while retaining the high end metal casing that made the S6 look so good. It is water resistant to the point where you can even hold it under a faucet for up to thirty minutes without the phone sustaining any water damage whatsoever.
This water resistant quality even extends to the phone’s openings such as its headphone jack and charging port. One can run water over these areas for up to thirty minutes as well, and no water will enter the phone at all. This makes the phone extremely useful for a lot of people, as water damage is one of the biggest reasons that people’s phones stop working.
Another really cool feature that the Samsung Galaxy S7 possesses is an “always on” feature. This always on feature makes it so that when you lock your phone, the screen will not go blank. Instead, it will display the time along with the number of notifications you have next to an icon of the app that the notifications belong to. This always on feature will end up using far less battery in the long run, because with other phones you have to unlock the phone, turning the entire screen on which ends up using a lot more battery.
Additionally, the Samsung Galaxy S7s camera has been greatly improved. The Auto Focus feature focuses on objects almost instantly. Sudden changes in distance are also handled extremely well, with the S7s camera focusing on the new object almost immediately. This compares very favorably with the camera of the iPhone 6S, in which focusing tends to take a lot of time.
